Tested: the GMC Yukon Denali
Taking full advantage of the continuing boom of SUV sales on both a local and international scale, American automobile GMC has upgraded its 2015 Yukon Denali beast this year, positioning it as an even safer powerhouse vehicle.
All the might and muscle of last year’s (all-new) Yukon has been purposefully kept, but – in a move that seems almost tailored to the perilous highways of the Middle East – the 2016 model will house innovative new safety features and ensure added peace of mind when waging war on whichever roads lie in your path.
A Lane Keep Assist works in conjunction with a Lane Departure warning to keep the vehicle in its lane with a gentle nudge by way of multiple cameras and sensors peppered over the Yukon’s colossal form. A hugely valuable preventative measure galvanised by the SUV’s smart electrical assisted steering.
Concerned with more than just your own well-being, GMC has installed the refreshed Denali with ‘IntelliBeam’, a system that detects oncoming traffic and adjusts the car’s high beam function to minimize glare for traffic coming in the other direction.
So with all that taken care of, you just have to hope your fellow road-users keep their eyes on the road… and off the fine beast you’re driving.
